Web and business applications must be continuously, possibly automatically, monitored and scanned for vulnerabilities. InfoSec teams need to be aware of these vulnerabilities in order to properly maintain secure applications. A variety of automated scanning tools and services exist to analyze systems to provide information regarding insecure configurations, malware infections and open ports. A programmatic approach to remediation of these findings then ensues including patching, updating, changes in software configuration or security policy and procedure updates.
For an organization to have an effective application security vulnerability management program, substantial resources from information security teams are required to select appropriate tools and services, those decisions need to be integrated, and then companies must successfully develop and maintain a strategy to keep them up to date and performing. MorganFranklin can provide these services: tool and solution assessment and recommendation, software configuration and implementation, scanning, reporting, remediation practices, setting security policies, and application owner education — for a comprehensive vulnerability management program.
